(Sourced from PTI)
A Delhi court on Wednesday reserved its order on Congress party leader Shashi Tharoor's anticipatory bail plea for Thursday in a case related to his wife Sunanda Pushkar's death. The Thiruvananthapuram MP has already been summoned as an accused in the case. Special Judge Arvind Kumar reserved the judgment after the Delhi Police opposed Tharoor's anticipatory bail plea, saying he might flee the country.
In his plea, Tharoor had submitted that charge-sheet was filed and SIT had categorically stated that the probe was concluded and that his custodial interrogation was not required. The court had summoned the Congress leader as an accused in the case on June 5, asking him to appear before it on July 7 and observing that there were sufficient grounds to proceed against him.
The Delhi Police, in its charge-sheet filed in the case on May 14, had accused Tharoor of abetting Pushkar's suicide and told the court that he should be summoned as an accused in the case, claiming that there was sufficient evidence against him.
